Group Says Rural Highways Need Work
08/31/2010
 

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A national group of state

transportation officials says Congress needs to appropriate $600

billion to fix and upgrade the nation's highways, particularly in

rural areas.

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation

Officials released a report in Little Rock, Ark., and in Wichita,

Kan., on Monday saying truck freight will greatly expand in the

coming years. The group says the country needs strong rural roads

to get goods to market and to get supplies to farms and factories.

The group says rural highway improvement is also important for

safety, considering rural roads have three times more fatal crashes

than urban highway.

Legislation that has given states federal money for highway work

is to expire Dec. 31. Association director John Horsley said that,

in the short term, Congress needs to extend the funding at present

levels until a new bill can be crafted. Horsley and other speakers

said $600 billion would be enough to expand roads' capacity and

make them safer.
